Film: CSNY - Deja Vu (click for more info)
The UICA presents the film, "CSNY: Deja Vu," screening this week at 7:10pm with a final showing on Thursday, October 23rd. Since their debut in the late 1960s, Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young have functioned as the "town criers" of their generation. This film finds the band heading out on their "Freedom of Speech 2006" tour of North America, featuring music from Neil Young's controversial "Living With War" album. Songs from the tour are woven together with archival material, news footage, and audience reaction and observations, as the film examines the issues surrounding the integration of politics and art. The film is directed by Neil Young. For more details visit
